Mike Bacchus was recently appointed chief executive officer at talent management services provider Optimum Talent.
“My philosophy is that a focus on happy colleagues results in happier clients, and happy clients become advocates for our business,” Bacchus said. “As a leader, one of my primary goals is to attract, develop and retain a community of passionate professionals that are best-in-class. And, as a leading HR talent firm, we should expect nothing less from ourselves.”
Bacchus has more than two decades of management experience. He most recently served as CEO at Conroy Ross Partners. Prior to that he was president of David Aplin Group.
“I am thrilled to have Mike step into the role of CEO,” Optimum Talent's former CEO Ronald Dahms said. “He is a tremendous leader who is passionate about creating a strong internal culture and has a great ability to translate his vision and strategy into reality. The company has a tremendous opportunity for growth over the next few years as the largest Canadian-owned, integrated talent management firm and Mike is the right person to lead the business to achieve its goals.”
